My Sheri Crafts #98

The current theme over at My Sheri Crafts is to make any project that shows "thanks" to honor the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday

I have decided to make a Thanksgiving banner to display at my home

Each section of the banner measures at 4.25" x 5.5" ... it was more efficient to cut up a piece of 8.5" x 11" cardstock into exactly four pieces.  I also used a thicker cardboard cardstock underneath each panel to make it more durable.  The font is "Rockwell Extra Bold" and I used SCAL to create it and cut it with my Cricut.  I decided to use the pilgrims at the end panels and those are from the Thanskgiving Cricut cartridge.  All the large flowers were something I've had that's been hanging around for a long time.  The smaller flowers were originally white and I used alcohol inks to dye them to match the colors of the papers from the upper part of each panel

The papers are from the "Grace" paper pack by Close to My Heart.  It's hard to see or read it but the background paper for most of the panels are printed words repeating the definition of words such as thankful, grateful, family, friends, and other words

Now, I wonder if Sheri or Peachy will notice that these large flowers are from the same batch of flowers I used in my last MSC Fall project ages ago... heee heee

Now... it's your turn to create something spectacular and join us over at  My Sheri Crafts
